Hi all,

Some students at Alfrink College are involved in a project to try and relate the happiness of the youth and the prosperity of a country. They have asked us for collaboration and will be very thankful if some of you take some minutes to fill in the following  survey, which consists of 20 questions. The survey is completely anonymous; they only ask the students’ gender, age and nationality.

Here is the link to it:


Prepositions. A tricky business

Using the right preposition is one of the most complicated things of the English language. As you already know, very often the preposition in English does not coincide with the one we would use in Spanish for the same context. The only way to get to know them well is by practicing a lot. That’s what we have done in class, but here you will find some of the exercises  in case you want to continue practicing. Enjoy!!
